How to Set Up Your Unit Meetings
Setting up your unit meetings is a great way to let scouts, parents and prospective members more easily find where your unit meets. You can even create maps that can be viewed by your unit members and/or the public. Setting up your unit meetings is easy to do but must be done by someone in your unit with the proper authorization. Your unit's primary leader or someone authorized by them can create maps for your meetings. Just follow these few simple steps...
1 - To start - your primary unit leader must activate your unit's web site.

2 - Browse to your unit page and click the link on the right labeled "Regular Meetings"
3 - If you have the appropriate permissions there will be a link in the upper right corner of the page labeled "[Manage]". Click that link to manage your meetings.
4 - On the list of meetings, click the "edit" link to edit and existing meeting or the "add" link to add a new meeting.
Your primary unit meeting is pre-defined and cannot be deleted. It can always be viewed by the public. Any additional meetings you add can be viewed by the public or can be set to private, which only allows Unit Friends to see the meeting. Just use the Public/Private settings.
5 - Enter the general meeting information on the General tab and use the tools on the Location tab to create a map.
By default, your primary unit meeting will be mapped when web site users do a unit search using the Unit Search Tool. If you do not want your primary unit meeting to show in public search results, uncheck the appropriate box on the Location tab. Only the primary meeting shows in unit search results. No other meetings are mapped.
